PERSPECTIVES IN EMERGENCY MEDICINE
Welcome to the Maimonides Medical Center Emergency Medicine Clerkship!
During the next four weeks, we will introduce you to basic wellness concepts and provide you with concrete skills to help you to address any stressors that you may encounter during the remaining time in medical school, transition to residency, and beyond. This course will consist of four one-hour classroom sessions during your didactic day. You will have prerequisite readings and videos to review prior to each class, as well as a short written assignment. We think that you find these both interesting and enlightening. Finally, at the end of the course, you will leave here with an individualized wellness plan that will hopefully serve you well in the months and years to come. Looking forward to working with you!
